Dorne in the Shattered Kingdoms

Post by TetNak on Sun Apr 16, 2017 8:26 am

Dorne, unlike many of the former Seven Kingdoms, retained all of it's previous holdings and did not expand. The ruling family is also still Martell, the heir of Doran, Arianne, inheriting the lands of Dorne as Princess. When the Shattering began, Dorne was one of the last to proclaim independence as Doran Martell was careful as always. Doran Martell gave his strength to Robert Baratheon in the fight against House Lannister, but eventually took the opportunity to proclaim independence when it was clear none would have the strength to oppose their claim.

Although Dorne eagerly fought against House Lannister, they have mostly kept themselves out of other conflicts. Doran's death in 301 AC saw his headstrong daughter taking up his mantle. Unfortunately, her brother Quentyn, sought support for an uprising so that he could take his father's place. He raised many powerful allies, including House Yronwood, and those within other Kingdoms eager to see a male upon the throne as the Seven advises. It was a long and bloody civil war, keeping Dorne from expanding their hold onto Westeros even if they desired it. The fighting lasted nearly a decade, and finally Quentyn was forced to flee Dorne to the Free Cities with his principal allies and supporters.

Today, there are still lingering resentment on both sides of the conflict as Dorne rebuilds from the turmoil caused by the succession conflict.

Arianne Martell is unwed, and has never wed, she has three bastard sons from three different paramours.

Including: Lewyn Sand, son of Gerrard Darry.

Trystane Martell has been missing for many years now.  Both Quentyn and Arianne claim the other side has either abducted or killed him.

The heir of Arianne is technically Quentyn. Arianne has not spoken publicly about her own succession.
